For S/S2018 yellow has made its play for being the colour of the season. Here are Stylist’s pick of the 13 best yellow dresses of the summer.

Until S/S2018 a yellow dress was not considered an essential for your summer wardrobe. A slip dress, a floral dress, probably a striped or checked dress, but not a bold marigold or mustard dress. Oh, how times have changed - everyone from Amal Clooney to Megan Markle have been sporting them this season. Whether it be a long puff-sleeved evening dress from Stine Goya or an everyday dress from Warehouse, scroll down for Stylist’s pick of the best yellow dresses to wear for every occasion.

Stine Goya

Wear Stine Goya’s woven maxi dress with large hoop earrings and strappy heeled sandals for the perfect summer evening outfit.



Add espadrilles and a straw bag to this Warehouse dress for a bright holiday look.



Wear this broderie anglaise maxi dress day or night, paired with slides and an embellished clutch.


Preen by Thornton Bregazzi

If diving straight into all-over yellow is too much, this floral dress is the perfect halfway house.



To give your summer staple shirt dress an update, try Zara’s mustard mini.


Cecilie Bahnsen

Balance the oversized volume of this velvet tiered dress with slingback flats.   


Vero Moda

Style this pretty mini wrap-dress with trainers and a cross body bag for weekend style.



For work-appropriate yellow, pair this Finery dress with heels and a tote.



Wear your hair up to show off the neckline ruffles and pair with vertiginous heels.


Miss Selfridge

For easy weekend style, team with a white tee and trainers.


Modern Rarity

A pair of tan wrap-around sandals will complement this sorbet yellow dress.



For those extra hot summer holiday nights, stay cool in a classic slip dress.



With large pockets on the front, this is not only chic but practical.
